Jennifer Choi

Violinist Jennifer Choi has charted a career that breaks through the conventional boundaries of solo violin, chamber music, and the art of improvisation.

One of the most sought-after violinists by prominent composers of today, she has been hailed multiple times by The New York Times as a “soulful, compelling…excellent violinist,” and by Time Out New York as “passionate,” and “adventurous.” Since giving her recital debut at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall in 2000, Jennifer has performed regularly in venues far and wide, including the Stone NYC, Roulette, WQXR’s Cafe Concerts, LPR, the Library of Congress in Washington D. C., RAI National Radio in Rome, and Cite de la Musique in Paris. As a soloist, she has performed with the Oregon Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Ensemble 212, and SONYC (String Orchestra of New York City).

As an award-winning chamber musician, she was a founding member of the Miro String Quartet, a member of ETHEL, the Sirius quartet, and performs regularly with the Ensemble San Francisco, and the Either Or Ensemble. As guest soloist and chamber musician, she has performed for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, The Guggenheim Museums, MOMA, Ravinia, Berkeley Chamber Performances, Caramoor, and numerous chamber series and festivals across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Bringing her classical background to the world of experimental jazz, creative improv, and the avant-garde, she has fearlessly performed, premiered, and recorded solo and chamber works by John Zorn, Susie Ibarra, Annie Gosfield, Ches Smith, Yuka Honda, and numerous others. Highlights include Wadada Leo Smith’s violin concerto, “Afrikana 2,” Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Violin and Percussion, and the upcoming premiere of John Zorn’s solo “Partita.”
